Sicking Career Too Much For
Youth Of 17, Educator Thinks
Mature Thought Should Be Used
In Selecting Life’s
Is youth of 17 or 18 years com
petent to select his life career?
Should the college freshman go In
for all activities possible and try to
become a member of as many fra
ternities and other organizations as
he Is able?
, These are some of the questions
discussed by William H. P. Faunce,
president of Brown university. This
educutor also tells how his univer
sity proceeds In picking students
for the freshman class and how au
thorities go about getting some idea
of the needs of these students aftyf
they have been approved.
If I were entering college today,
I certainly would not attempt to
choose a life career entrance.
Boy Does Not Know Ills Capacity.
What does a boy of 17 or 18 know
about Ills own latent, capacities or
the changing sphere of private op
portunity and public service. The
"limitation of objectives” is a com
mon error. Between 18 and 22 a
young man la discovering himsell
and acquiring wholly new horizons.
The college course Is a voyage
through strange seas of thought.
.Before the voyage begins no sailor
can select the single Island on which
to make his future home.
I I am told that scores of yoimg
* men in New York business offices,
trained in a “business college,”
deeply regret their own narrow
ness of outlook. Competent In book

are yet unable to talk with men

I one groove, they are bored by li
braries and music and art, and are
strangers In large sections of Amer
ican life. A liberal education should
j liberate a man from spending his
'life In a groove.
If I were entering college I would
try not to join everything In sight.
Many college organizations seem
brilliant only to outsiders. They of
fer the student a pin, a foolish
ritual, his picture In the college an
nual—and a chance to fritter away
his evenings.
Outdoor Sport Helpful.
I As a freshman I would go tn
heartily for some form of outdoor
sport—not only for physical de
velopment, but for release of the
play Instinct, for resting tired
nerves, for learning to make quick
decisions, Judge distance and time
I and chance, to face opponents un
terttlied, and toe a gentleman and
a good sport. But the moment any
game becomes a species of war.
It ceases to be play and becomes
a useless grind.
The process of selecting students
for the freshman class ts now one
of the most difficult and delicate
before our crowded colleges. No
longer can we rely on a mere num
ber of “points” as certifying that
a man Is fit to profit by a college
He may present points without
numbers, but if he is lazy or vicious,
if he is a loud-mouthed nouveau
riche, if he is destitute or the in
stincts of a gentleman or loyalty to
truth and honor, we do not want
Three years ago we introduced a
psychological test for every intend
ing freshman, and the results are
extremely helpful. We also ask
committees of alumni in all the
large centres of population to meet
the applicant and “size him up.”
As soon us a student enters he
meets our student counselor, Is as
signed to faculty advisor, is Invited
to meet some representative alum
nus in Providence, and in case of
any "complex" is sent to the psy
chologist who is one of our medical
staff. We do not mean that any
student shall be lost in the crowd.
Need Of Psychology.
In our mobile, hurried modern
life, the need of phychology and
psychiatry Is vastly greater than
twenty-five years ago. Matters of
temperament, mal-adjustment, dis
content at home, sense of infer
iority in college, changing moral
standrds in society, and religious
difficulties—all these things are
urgent than ever before, and the
specialist who fills the professor's
chair may not understand how to
I meet them. If psychology has any
message for the modern world, it
is vitally needed in the freshman

thoroughly opposed to co-education,
except as a makeshift until the col

There are distractions enough with

In exactly the same way, academi

But I would go further and de

classes, through individual instruc

Twenty or more shops on Pennr
sylvanla avenue are bulging with
an infinite variety of Washington
souvenirs today, in anticipation of
150,000 or 200,000 visitors expected
here for the Hoover Inauguration.
These are the shops whence come
those strange things proudly dis
played by the returned tourrist.
A great number of the Washing
ton souvenirs are made abroad
in Japan, Germany, Italy and Aus
tria. Despite tariff walls, foreign
novelty manufacturers can sell
them cheaper, apparently, than
ours. Those tin brass trays, used
to receive ashes, calling cards, pins;
or collar buttons—or '■'even Just as
ornaments—nil profusely decorated
with scenes of the Capitol and other
Washington sights, are made in,
Japan. These trays are always
among the best sellers on the ave
nue, as are the tiny Washington
monuments of marble, with thermo
meter attached and selling at 25,
50 and 75 cents, according to size,
which are made in Austria.
Don't forget your pocketbook,
for you can buy almost anything
bearing “Washington. D. C.” or a
representation of the Capitol, and
sometimes both. Tha souvenir
shops -are waiting eagerly.
Lawrence Miller, one of the shop
owners, says that he has just re
ceived a thousand varl-colored com
pacts for the ladies, on which the
Capitol is almost life-size These
are very popular all along the ave
nue, but your correspondent does
not guarantee the quality of the
rouge. To the boys Mr. Miller and
other shopkeepers hope to dispose
of many handsome photos of Hoo
ver and Curtis on one side and of
the Capitol on the other.
Photos always sell well, of course.
There's a nice colored postcard of
the entire Hoover family, plain
photos of Hoover and Curtis, hand

cherry blossoms and other Wash

Tires for the new Ford
are specially made
to give long wear
WHEN the new Ford was de
signed, it was immediately
apparent that a new tire
would have to be made to
match the car’s perform
ance. It was distinctly a new
problem, for here was a car
with quicker acceleration,
greater speed and more
braking efficiency than any
car of similar size or weight.
So that every Ford owner
might be assured of maxi
mum tire mileage at the low
est cost, the Ford Motor
Company devoted many
months to research and
experiment in conjunc
tion with the leading tire
As a result, certain defi
nite specifications were de
veloped for tires for the new
Ford. These specify cords of
certain strength and texture,
a large volume of tread and
side-wall rubber, sturdy non
skid design, and reinforced
plies for protection against
bruise breaks—all the
strong features of construe
tion formerly considered
for only the largest tires.
Though the Ford tires are
designated as 30 x 4.50,
they have the resiliency and
air space of much larger
tires because of the drop
center rim of the steel-spoke
For best results, the tires
on the new Ford should be
kept inflated to an air pres*
sure of 35 pounds and
checked regularly to insure
this pressure all the time.
This is important. Low in*
flation breaks down the side
walls of a tire. By causing
overheating, it also destroys
the rubber that acts as an
insulation, with consequent
separation of the cord.
At the end of each 5000
miles, when you have the
front wheels packed with
grease, it is a good plan to
have the wheel alignment
checked. This will prevent
premature wear.
When punctures come, as
they will with any tire, you
will find the Ford dealer
particularly well'equipped
to make repairs quickly and
at small cost. See him. too.
